Scott Ian (Anthrax) Seems To Hint That The Damned Things Have A New Album In The Works

During a recent appearance on the Wall Of Sound: Up Against The Wall With Browny podcast, Scott Ian (Anthrax) seemed to hint that a new The Damned Things (Anthrax, Every Time I Die, Fall Out Boy, etc.) album may be in the works. He said the following:

“We always knew with The Damned Things, it was always going to be something that we would get to do schedules permitting, because we are all in extremely busy bands. But look, we’re all friends and we’re all in contact with each other on a regular basis and I can say that there is, possibly, a record, but that’s all I’m going to say about it [laughs].”

Members of the group previously said they were working on an EP and Keith Buckley (Every Time I Die) even shared a teaser awhile back.

Keith Buckley (Every Time I Die) On New The Damned Things EP: “We Are Still Very Much In The Demo Phase”

Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy) previously revealed that The Damned Things (Every Time I Die, Anthrax, etc.), were working on a new EP. Alternative Press have since asked frontman Keith Buckley about that and he said there is “more than enough material for an EP,” but it’s still in the “demo phase.”


Buckley said the following:

“While we have more than enough material for an EP, we are still very much in the ‘demo’ phase, rearranging riffs and trying different things vocally. And though it’s a little too early to say what the next release will sound like comprehensively, we’ve taken a different approach to writing this time around. Things are more atmospheric and weirder. We’ve loosened up a bit and learned to let our major influences speak. In that way, it’s the truest sound we’re capable of.”

Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy) Says The Damned Things (Anthrax, Every Time I Die, Etc.) Are Working On A New EP

It looks like The Damned Things, the band featuring Keith Buckley (Every Time I Die), Scott Ian (Anthrax), Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy), Joe Trohman (Fall Out Boy), Rob Caggiano (Volbeat, ex-Anthrax), and Josh Newton (Shiner, ex-Every Time I Die, etc.), are working on a new EP. Hurley was recently interviewed on 100 Words Or Less, and said the following:

“I recorded five songs for an EP with The Damned Things—I don’t think we’ll be playing, Anthrax is still touring on their last record. Every Time I Die just put out their new record, uh, who else? Josh Newton I think has been playing lately. He tech’d for Joe for awhile, I’m not sure if he’ll be back when we’re back. So you know, that’s all over the place.”
